Personal growth and leadership development are at the forefront of the FCCLA Mission. By completing projects for service learning and participating in competitive events, students gain important leadership skills they take with them for life.
Montana FCCLA is led by student officers who have demonstrated leadership skills in and out of the classroom. Each of the approximately 70 chapters throughout Montana elects officers to guide their programming. These chapters are organized into ten districts. Annually, each district elects a student member as the district president. That person serves on the State Executive Council to recommend and develop programs, projects and activities for Montana FCCLA. A group of elected adult leaders serve on the Board of Directors to develop programming policy and oversee fiscal matters.
